Winter

Skiers and Snowboarders of all ages and abilities come to enjoy our winter playground with its mix of terrain from novice to expert. With 26 trails spread over 100 acres, including four terrain parks and a novice discovery area, it's a great place for families and friends to enjoy the season outdoors. The Snowsports School offers a variety of lessons and programs, suitable for first timers to experts. State of the art snowmaking and daily grooming ensures the best possible conditions - even if there is no snow in your backyard. Wild Mountain has a long tradition of being the first area to open in the Midwest each year. Wild Chutes is fun for snow tubers of all ages - experience not required! Ride the conveyor lift with your tube to the top of the hill, choose one of the available chutes and experience the exhilaration of sliding down a specially groomed tubing chute. Once you slow to a stop at the bottom it's time to grab your tube and ride the conveyor back to the top. There is exciting family FUN for all at Wild Mountain and Wild Chutes!

Spring

The warm spring air breathes new life into the St Croix Valley. It's great to smell the fresh clean air and witness the new life that has blossomed along the river. The St. Croix River is one of the cleanest rivers in the country and you are sure to enjoy the scenic views alternating from the rugged rock outcroppings of the Dalles to the lush green landscape of the wooded banks beyond. Beginning in early May the Taylors Falls Scenic Boat Tours and Taylors Falls Canoe and Kayak Rental offer a unique opportunity to view the river valley. Late in May the Wild Mountain Waterpark slides into action. Open to the public on weekends only thru early June, the waterpark plays host to school groups for year end picnics during the week (reservations required). Wildwood RV Park and Campground welcomes early season visitors begining in May. Step outside and witness the excitement of a new season, a season of FUN for all!

Summer

Family fun fills the day at Wild Mountain's outdoor waterpark. Water activities include four waterslides, a lazy river and Wild Adventure Island. Also at the park you'll find one of only two Alpine Slides in MN, Formula K Go-Karts and Junior Go-Karts for the youngest drivers. Taylors Falls Scenic Boat Tours offer a variety of ways to enjoy the scenic beauty of the St. Croix River. Climb aboard for a narrated tour starting in the historic Dalles, or join us for a relaxing Picnic, Dinner or Mexican Fiesta Cruise. The Princess and Queen are also available for private charter, a great way to make a special day or event even more memorable. Taylors Falls Canoe and Kayak Rental has a long history on the river. The company began renting canoes and boats in 1910. Although much has changed in the surrounding area in the century of operation, the river itself remains relatively unchanged. You can almost feel the history as you paddle quietly downstream. With all the activities and events in the area you will want to stay nearby. Wildwood RV Park and Campground, less than an hour north of the Twin Cities, is your gateway to FUN in the beautiful and historic Taylors Falls area.

Fall

Fall scenery in the St Croix Valley is a delight for visitors. Experience the fall colors as you paddle downstream in one of the canoes or kayaks available at Taylors Falls Canoe Rental. Perhaps the view from the upper deck of an authentic paddlewheel boat during one of the daily scenic cruises, or a romantic evening Dinner Cruise is what you are looking for. At Wild Mountain the Alpine Slides and Go-Karts are open weekends from Labor Day thru the first weekend in October. Or you may choose to ride the chair lift to the top, take in the panoramic view and ride the chair lift back down. Wildwood Campground is open thru early October for visitors planning an extended stay. There is something for everyone to enjoy in the area! Come enjoy the FUN!
